    ...Jameson and Chris L T521 for 52 weeks of continuous posting of the POTW.

    It takes true dedication to keep this going week after week for an entire year, coming up with an interesting problem, reviewing the submissions, sending PMs to folks to give them a chance to correct their work if need be, and choosing a solution or solutions to post, keeping in mind whose solutions have been posted more often in the past in the case of similar solutions, so that as many people as possible have a fair chance at having their solution posted.

    I think this is one of the many things that makes our site a great place, and these guys surely deserve our appreciation and thanks. So, Jameson and Chris, my hat is off to you for your generous efforts and I look forward to another year of the POTW, and many years to come.

    Thank you, Mark! I really enjoy the whole process of POTW and just hope you guys do too. It would be great to one day have our problems given as extra credit in classrooms or something similar. When I was taking algebra II we had a weekly problem from some website for extra credit and it was always fun for me to try, especially when I got the correct answer.

    I do the high school level problems, but Chris handles the much tougher levels and he does two problems per week as well. It's not easy to do at all and even when he doesn't get any attempts for a problem he keeps on going to next week. Great job, Chris!

    I only began participating a few weeks ago and the high school POTW has given me some fun problems to play with! Thanks, Jameson for posting so many interesting maths problems and I'm looking forward to more!

    Thanks to Mark too for motivating me to submit my solutions to the POTW by being an insistent 'nudger' that keeps asking me, 'Hey, have you seen this week's POTW yet?'

    Congratulations and many thanks for keep posting interesting challenges in MHB, Jameson and Chris L T521!

    I have peeked into the POTW forums when I first logged in, I saw various problems there and some of them are quite tough, at least for me. The reason I don't participate there is because the POTW problems are either not in my region of study of mathematics or very easy. So, I request if our respected admins can count NT, ANT and hard CA (analytic continuation, Riemann Surface, etc.) in the POTW subject and it would be quite a fun to solve diophantine equations, prove asymptotic relations, etc.

    Thank you Jameson and Chris L T521 for the challenges you post weekly makes this site a far different than the other math forums. It would be very nice if you consider the suggestions I gave, I'll happily accept any considerations from any admin,

    JUst a suggestion why don't consider giving credits to those who solve POTW , I don't know how the credits will be given but this will encourage more members to participate .

    Jameson and Chris are open to taking problems submitted by our members for use as a POTW. Click the P.O.T.W. tab near the top of the forum screen, and you will find a form to fill out. Now this doesn't help you with having problems to solve in the areas you mentioned, but it does allow you to have a problem you like to be considered for use as a future POTW.

    If more people did this, not only would it make things a bit easier on Jameson and Chris, but we would naturally have a wider variety of problems potentially used.

    Are you talking about a stat that displays like the thanks given/received, or a topic in which a tally is kept of all those who have participated, and how many in each category they have answered correctly?

    The former might be difficult to code, while the latter would have to be maintained by someone. Just my thoughts.

    This is an idea jakncoke (he helps us code custom PHP scripts and plugins) had and I really liked so we might be able to set this up this year. It would be a simple points tally that we would add to the postbit information below "Thanked:____". I think this would encourage more to participate who already know about POTW as well as letting new members know that we have such a thing.

    I have delayed adding my congratulations until Chris posted this week's undergrad POTW just to make sure he really did complete the year but I completely agree with what Mark says. It is a tremendous achievement to keep up posting stimulating problems on such a regular basis. To be honest, when they started the POTW I expected it to fizzle out after a few weeks, as has happened on some other forums. I am full of admiration for Jameson and Chris for their excellent work.

    Yes, Chris had me a bit worried early this morning, but I was confident he would post.
